  Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Place the parsnips on baking sheet,
  single layer, sprinkle w/ pepper.  Drizzle with 2tblsp olive oil in
  preheated oven 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown.  While the
  parsnips are roasting, boil the stock in a small saucepan over high
  heat until reduced by half ;set aside. Slice the top round into 6
  1-inch-thick steaks. Dredge the meat lightly in flour and set aside.
  Place a large cast-iron skillet over very high heat and add 3tblsp of
  the olive oil.  when oil is hot sear the steaks 4-6 min./side. Remove
  the steaks to warmed serving plates. Add the lime juice, lime zest,
  COCA-COLA to the pan and boil for 3 minutes, stirring to scrape up
  the browned bits from bottom of pan.  Add the reduced stock, stirring
  to combine.  Turn up the heat as high as possible and cook to reduce
  the liquid to 1/2 cup.  Set aside and keep warm.   Place a medium
  saucepan over high heat and add the remaining 3tblsp olive oil.  Add
  the spinich and cook, stirring constantly, until it is wilted, about
  1 minute. season with salt and pepper.  TO SERVE: Place 1 steak on
  each plate.  Mound some spinach at base of each steak and arrange
  roasted parsnips across the center of each plate in a band.  Pour the
  warm sauce over the meat and serve.  NOTE:  carrots can be
  substituted for parsnips.
